Artisanal cheeses, tender meats, and rich chocolates contrast and accentuate the flavors of several wines, which guests sample as live jazz echoes from the nearby piano bar.
Cork & Olive Wine Bar & Café
Cork & Olive Wine Bar & Café's chief oenophiles, Hank and Doug, celebrate the store's expansive collection of wines and microbrews by adding a social tasting and snacking experience to the joy of shopping for fine imbibables. During these tastings, guests may have the opportunity to observe actual gold flakes tumble and turn amid the racing bubbles of the Peter Brum Gold Sparkler or note how the creamily textured tannins in the Cinnabar merlot transform when paired with artisanal cheeses and gourmet meats. Oak barrels await the touch of a tap to allow customers to fill their own bottles or purses with ripe, fermented delights. Every Friday and Saturday, live jazz imbues the air with as many varied and unpredictable notes as are found in the store's collection of wines.
